‘It’s only been six months!’: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer grills Priebus after spectacular tarmac firing

Published

on

Outgoing White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus is playing the good soldier until the very end, as he refused to veer off his talking points during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Friday evening, just hours after his resignation was announced.

During the interview, Priebus loyally defended President Donald Trump and insisted that he wasn’t at all unhappy about departing the White House.

“But it’s only been six months, not very long,” Blitzer pointed out. “When you say [Trump] wanted to do things differently, tell us precisely what he said to you, why he wants to do things differently and why you concluded that didn’t include you.”

“I’m not going to get into that personal stuff,” he said. “The president is a professional, and I’m a professional and professional people don’t discuss private conversations in public.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Blitzer asked him to respond to comments made by White House Communications Direct Anthony Scaramucci, who earlier in the week called Priebus a “f*cking paranoid schizophrenic.”

Even when confronted with personal insults, however, Priebus would not take the bait.

“I’m not getting into that, Wolf,” Priebus said when asked about Scaramucci’s comments. “Look, it’s over. I’m moving on. I support the president, and I support [incoming White House Chief of Staff] John Kelly and the president’s agenda. So that’s all you’re going to get from me on that. I’m not going to get into the individual personal stuff.”

‘Martyrdom for snowflakes’: CNN analyst knocks Republicans who desperately wanted to be arrested at protest

Published

on

CNN host Don Lemon reported Wednesday evening that many Republicans wanted to be arrested for storming the secure room where the House Intelligence Committee depositions were taking place.

Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted that he was told "there was never any chance [members] who barged into SCIF would be arrested by [capital police], but some members asked to be arrested. They wanted the optic of being frog-marched out of the SCIF in front of TV cameras. That would help w/GOP narrative of Dem process abuse."

Commentator Wajahat Ali called it the perfect example of "martyrdom for snowflakes."

Seth Meyers says Republicans storming classified room looked like a protest at a pharmacy that ran out of Viagra

Published

"Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers couldn't help but lambast the far-right Republicans angry that they're not being included in the depositions ahead of the impeachment hearings.

Wednesday, Republicans stormed a secure room known as a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility), because they seemed to misunderstand the difference between a deposition and a hearing. In Congressional hearings, witnesses will be presented for members of the committee to question. In a classified deposition, the witness can give information that is considered classified for security reasons. Oddly, some members who are allowed in the room were also protesting.

WATCH: CNN’s Don Lemon bursts out laughing over Trump’s new wall in Colorado

Published

CNN's Don Lemon typically deals with difficult and intense topics at the top of his weekly show. Wednesday night, however, after a serious opener about Syria and ISIS, Lemon broke into hysterics over President Donald Trump's flub saying he would build a border wall on Colorado's border.

"You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on our border. And they didn't have it," said Trump. "And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can't get over, you can't get under. And we're building a wall in Texas. And we're not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible."
